A wonderfully clear view of Bushey Station in Victorian times
1897 2 mins Silent
This film affords us a beautifully clear view of Bushey Station in Victorian times. A train passes, a goods train headed for London passes on the opposite side, then a train northbound for Watford stops to drop off and collect passengers. This film was made by early film maker and exhibitor Charles Goodwin Norton, who often featured his own children in his films. Sure enough, it is the bearded and hatted Norton and his kids who are the group present on the platform throughout much of the film; at one point Norton points out the camera to them.
It is one of those children, Alice Norton, who donated the film to the BFI decades later.
